Description:

To start with, you will be met by your guide at your hotel lobby.

Depart from Saigon around 8am and head south to Ben Tre province, famous for its coconut production and quiet and peaceful waterways.

On arrival, take a "xe loi" (local means of transportation) ride through the local village of Huu Dinh to enjoy the green fields and gardens. Continue with a short walk to Huu Phuoc Bridge, where you will start your boat trip through small canals with beautiful tropical scenery. On board the boat, enjoy a welcome drink (mango cocktail) and some tropical fruits while cruising.

The cruise will stop first at a brick making shop, where locals still use centuries-old traditional methods of making bricks by hand. Then you will head back to your boat to cross the An Hoa River, where you will take a sampan trip through narrow canals and enjoy the peacefulness of the region. The sampan will take you to visit one of our friends, Mrs Huong, who lives with her 3 children and grandson – they live on fishing, shrimps, and fruit orchards. Enjoy fresh fruits and tea before heading to visit a rice noodle factory which produces Hu Tieu noodles, one of most popular breakfast dishes in the region.

Then rowing you back to your and head to the riverside restaurant, enjoy your 5 course lunch and freshen up before switch to a bicycle and ride  500m. About 4 minutes( or 7-10 minutes walk) on village roads past green gardens and local houses, and stop at another local house of Mr Sau Tuong, a former Vietcong soldier who survived two years fighting the Khmer Rouge in Phnom Penh. Now he and his wife live on making rice paper which is the most famous specialty of My Long village. Have a chat with him and enjoy the crispy rice paper made by his wife, and see how it is made.

After the visit, the boat will be waiting for you at the pier nearby to bring you back to Ben Tre city where your car will be ready to take you back to your hotel in Saigon.
